  • "My name is Graham and I live in the UK, the name is not commomn but not considered unusual. Name popularity tends to go in cycles and the few people I know who share my name are in the 60-75 age group. Perhaps it will regain it's popularity someday. Most Christian names in the UK continue our Anglo Saxon heritage though a few North American names (usually TV/film celebrities) are beginning to creep in.
